I have a confession to make……
I am a huge germaphobe.
Not your average keep my house clean,
wash my hands germaphobe.
A borderline obsessive,
don’t touch my baby
Ever since I completed nursing school
(long story short: not the job for me right now)
I have been ruined.
Now, add a new baby to the mix & you can imagine,
it’s a bit overwhelming.
While he was tiny I just asked people to please wash their hands,
but now that he is trying to crawl & using his walker (then chewing on his toes)
I am becoming obsessed with clean floors.
I just imagine shoes wandering the aisles of Walmart
then trekking through my house……my skin is crawling.
I could sweep & mop every day
but it’s impossible to have clean floors if you wear shoes in the house.
So I had to come up with a polite way to ask people to take their shoes off
before they come in the door.
Enter my favorite place to
waste time find inspiration
I found a couple of different sayings that I liked
but decided on
I used reclaimed barn wood from Logs ‘R Us
& painted it during my free time (ha! what is that??).
Needless to say it took me over a month to complete,
but I love how it looks by my door
& how it it saves my floor!!
What are some tactful ways that y’all have asked people to respect your germaphobe/cleanly tendencies??
